As educators, we have responsibility for maximising the learning outcomes and wellbeing of all students and for providing access to a high-quality education.
The legal responsibilities of educators who work with students with disability are outlined in the Disability Standards for Education 2005 (the Standards). The Standards were formulated under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA).
The Student Services team provides support for schools in understanding the relevant legislative requirements and how to apply their legal responsibilities in your school context through:
- tailored advice and school-based consultancy support
- face-to-face and virtual professional learning opportunities
- online modules (see details below)
- a range of fact sheets, proformas and case studies.
Explore the online module options below in more detail or contact a member of the Student Services team to discuss options for accessing further tailored supports.
